Governor Mike Pence will join Indiana Department of Workforce Development Commissioner Steve Braun this afternoon to announce recipients of Skill UP Indiana grant funds. The $11 million will supports efforts to equip potential workers with necessary job skills.
The Skill UP Indiana program provides funding for community partnerships to develop training and education programs to match employers’ needs. The DWD says those participating in the program can learn the skills needed to fill the one million jobs that are projected to be available in Indiana over the next ten years.
The announcement of the grant recipients will be given at 1:30 p.m. at the Indiana State Library. Click here for more information on the Skill UP Indiana program.
